After you have registered and logged in to the orderbird MINI, you will receive an email with a link. Click on it to get to the online form and enter the following information.

The most important things at a glance:

Attach the following documents to the end of the form:

  • Proof of bank details with bank, account holder, IBAN and date not older than two months
